What We Do

HIMSS Future50 International

Originally aimed at identifying and bringing together the top 50 Healthcare IT leaders in Europe, this year Future50 by HIMSS is going international and expanding the reach to include the who’s who in Healthcare IT from Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.

This global community will work alongside HIMSS and our partners to overcome current and future systemic health challenges by addressing gaps and needs at the local and regional levels.

About Future50

The HIMSS Future50 is who we should look to for the future of healthcare today. They influence the potential of digital health to improve healthcare for all of us. The Future50 community will be encouraged to share expertise, collaborate over borders and foster innovation both individually and as a group.

HIMSS will provide the community with a platform to achieve this and with a mechanism to promote the eHealth agenda at an international level. The community members are expected to attend quarterly online meetings as well as occasional dedicated activities within the existing HIMSS framework. Community members receive recognition in HIMSS media and events. They also receive HIMSS Individual Membership for a year, as well as complimentary passes to various HIMSS events year- round.
